Elliott Sharp: Guitars, Electronics / Christian Marclay: Turntables

"The guitarist Elliott Sharp and the turntable player Christian Marclay met in a studio in New York and, during three days, developed unusual tonal worlds. The encounter of both.

The guitars of Sonic Youth with turntable avantist Marclay. ...a wall of beautiful noise was erected...mesmeric abandon.-The Independent. [Victo]

In a 30 year career, this is only Albert's 8th album. I am probably the biggest fan of Marcoeur in North America, but I gotta say that I found this to be very subdued on the only 2 listenings I have been able to give it so far. His fans must have it i...


"The new Al Margolis/If, Bwana CD is comprised of 'Issue,' for electronics and multi-tracked voice, and 'An Innocent, Abroad,' a 40 plus minute work for electronics, vocals, and flutes. 'An Innocent, Abroad' can be best described as a Sonic Oratorio...

Compositions for tapes, electronics, voice, drones. Rex Xhu Ping (pronounced rex shoe ping) features Margolis (tapes, electronics, clarinet, and sundries), Laura Biagi (vocals), Dan Andreana (speaker, tapes), Detta Andreana (tapes, bowed cymbals), and...


Luciano was the guitarist and leader of LA 1919 for many years. Here he works on a project where most of the recordings here he constructed pieces out of guitar improvisations received through the mail, and then added musical materials (his own guitar,...

Falling behind at work is terrible; you try and keep up and somehow, things just fall to the side and...which brings us to this 2008 release by guitarist Luciano Margorani, who played with the very good Italian band La 1919 for many years. Despite the...

"New ensemble comprised to develop and record the songs of Adrienne Pierluissi, a contemporary painter living in Milwaukee, WI, featuring Ken Vandermark, Nick Macri, Tim Daisy, John Dereszynski, Rick Reger, Joe McPhee, Tomeka Reid, and Jen Paulson...

Recorded in 1976, this features an amazing band: Charlie Mariano-soprano sax, alto sax, flute, nagasawaram, Zbigniew Seifert-violin, Jan Hammer-pianos and Moog, Jack Bruce-bass, John Marshall-drums and Nippy Noya-percussion. This would have been near...

"Marillion's 15th album is actually double album split into two separate CDs. "Happiness is the Road Volume One" is subtitled "Essence" and contains all new material from one of the most loved and passionate bands in the world. A new creative streak of...

"Recorded at the Astoria in London on July 10th and 11th 2004, this CD is pure live music from the band described as one of the progressive rock world's most enduring and undervalued treasures, Jon Hotten, Classic Rock. Marillions live performance is s...

"With 'Somewhere Else' Marillion have played to their strengths and cut one of their very best records. With their innate sense of drama and pomp tempered by a winning melancholy, Marillion have produced a set of rich and vivid soundscapes...

“Udentity was created with support from Chamber Music America's New Works: Creation and...

Duets for hyperpiano (prepared piano - using mostly the innards) and endangered guitar (prepared). Two great new-generation US improvisers. [Potlatch]

This is the 1st CD by pianist/keyboardist Andre Marques who is best known for his work with Hermeto Pascoal and Vintena Brasileira. The group features his piano, electric keyboards and flute, trombone, trumpet/flugelhorn, guitar, double bass and drums...

Very good album strongly in the Hermeto Pascoal style, which isn't surprising, considering that Andre is the keyboardist with Hermeto's group! He contributes his own take on the intricate/busy sound of Hermeto's unique and zippy take on jazz, but...

"The definitive collection of the 32 minutes of studio recordings released between 1977 and 1979 on vinyl by the first of the no wave bands. This album is an effort to recuperate the group's legacy and make up for the unavailability of these tracks in...

"This band keeps evolving and exploring and getting better with each album. I'm a big fan of prog-rock since my youth in the 70's with such bands as Pink Floyd, Yes, Rush, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull among others and I thought the style had died. One day, I

This live album, recorded between May 2004-May 2005 isn't really a live album in any conventional sense except Frank Zappa's. In other words, it has been massively worked-on in the studio, but you still get the raw power of a live performance at its base.

RESTOCKED! Prog? Punk? Who knows and who cares. Let's let the blowhards on the online boards fight that one out. The Mars Volta's album De-Loused In The Comatorium is an exciting, very unique and well played mixture of punk, progressive rock, Led Zepp...

Wynton is a truly great musician and, sadly, sort of a loudmouth, who has used his fame and influence to denigrate great music that isn't to his taste. This is a beautiful album and it's enjoyable as a great album but even more than the music itself...


Some of you picked up Rhys' first album, which was a really strong singer/songwriter album with heavy progressive touches. This is his second and falls much more heavily into the progressive rock category, but it keeps its distinctive sound. Lots...

"On the last day of summer, Rhys Marsh And The Autumn Ghost return with their third full-length record, ‘The Blue Hour’, in which Marsh leads them into another bold sonic-territory. The trademark combination of dynamics & melancholy remains, though...

A really, really strong singer/songwriter album with a heavy progressive component as well. Rhys writes nicely crafted, intimate songs, sings well, and accompanies himself on acoustic guitar, but it's the additional instrumentations and the...

Special price! Now out of print as Radioactive went bust. Last copies ever! Yes, I know it sounds like this should be a country-rock album, but it definitely is not. "Fascinating album from the Australian classical rock combo The Marshall Brothers..

Marshall is a composer working somewhere between ambient & post-minimal musics. Alcatraz blends music with a nice booklet of photography of the infamous abandoned prison.

Performed by Libby Van Cleve, english horn & oboe d'amore and Ingram Marshall, electronics. ''The English horn is amplified and processed through several digital delay devices and mixed live with the tape part. The tape part was createed using raw mat...

This is comprised of: Savage Altars (performed by the Tudor Choir), Authentic Presence (performed by pianist Sara Cahill), Five Easy Pieces (performed by the piano duo of Sara Cahill and Joseph Kubera) and Soe-pa (performed by guitarist Benjamin Verder...

"The pieces on this compact disk span almost three decades and represent the principal threads that have run through Ingram Marshall's (b. 1942) work: his remarkable skill in using electronics to create expressive and voluptuously beautiful pieces; the in

Highly collectable and highly regarded early progressive rock band. This was the band's first album and I believe that this is the first time it has been reissued from the master tapes. "This album, originally released in 1970 on Transatlantic, is made...

"Frank Martel et l’Ouest céleste are back with a third album, Yi-You-Yé-Ya, the logical follow-up to Sautons ce repas du midi and Enjambons ce désert. 13 short songs about fruits, vegetables and animals. With nods to Western music, Bernard Falaise's...

Pierre-Yves Martel (setar, shuranguiz, violin), Kiya Tabassian (dessus et basse de viole, preperations), Ziya Tabassian (percussion).

One of the albums of the decade. A collaboration between Hungarian composer Martha, poet Endre Szkarosi & the frighteningly gothic Sandor Bernath. Sounds of the Transylvanian countryside, medieval instruments fused with industrial percussion...structur...

"A striking and colorful CD of chamber music by Billy Martin, the dynamic percussionist from one of the world’s most popular instrumental bands, Medeski Martin and Wood. Performed and recorded originally on a wide variety of African thumb pianos, these...

Felix Martin is this quite young looking guitarist who invented a 14 string guitar which he plucks and taps and generally abuses to great effect. The sound veers wildly between progressive rock (think Upsilon Acrux tapping mixed with Cynic/Gordian...

3 works by a composer who added Ravel's influence to the 12 tone school. [New Albion]

"Never underestimate the power of a sideman. Having talented, capable sidemen on board can mean the difference between a lackluster album and a creatively successful album -- and as a sideman, bassist Joe Martin has done his part to make a lot of...



This is a pretty great release that came out of nowhere. "A native of Mexico, where as a young man he encountered and became friends with American marverick Conlon Nancarrow, Ernesto Martinez has been sculpting remarkably original polyrhythmic composit...

"The second CD from this maverick Mexican composer, a former colleague of the legendary Conlon Nancarrow, features a radical new instrument—the hyperión: a portable piano with nylon guitar strings! Over two years went into the conception and...

Florentine guitarist Jacopo Martini fell in love with manouche music when, during a trip to France, he was introduced to the world of the gypsy guitarists with whom he played and studied gypsy guitar phrasing. In conjunction with group of trusted and ...

An unbelievable price on the hard to find Japanese version of this great album!

"Guitarist Pat Martino's second recording as a leader (which has been reissued on CD) finds him essentially playing advanced bop. His quintet (with Joe Farrell on tenor
